Democracy according to Iqbal (III)

Stray Reflections (1910)

The imperial ambitions of the various nations of Europe indicate that the Westerners are tired of Democracy.


  1. In the West democracy is defined by Freedom, Justice, and Equality and so it is within Islam.

    With the exception that the West pay more attention to Freedom first and...hmm...while...

    Islam we pay more attention to Justice first.

    Freedom doesn’t cater to the Justice of everyone, so everyone can’t be free, equal, or live in peace.

    But Justice, ensures that everyone is free to live in equality and peace.

  2. It is a very good explanation, Thinking. Thank you so much.

  3. Thanks Urooj for three fine posts on DEMOCRACY ACCORDING TO IQBAL and equally well descriptive response on them by Thinking.
